Future Meetings

For the future we are looking at the possibility of replacing the in-person meeting with a “hybrid” meeting. That is to say that attendees who cannot, for whatever reason, come in person will be able to take part via Zoom, with a TV screen to one side of the room.

This idea may or may not appeal to you.


We would really like your views.

Understanding and Working with Shame in Person-Centred Practice with Helen Skelton Online Workshop: 19 June 2021 9.30-4.30 6.5 hours CPD - £75 Shame is everywhere – lurking in the shadows of human experience and relationships, and used as a tool for social and relational control. Shame often looks like something else however, and stays unrecognised or mis-recognised by both clients and therapists. Missing such crucial experiences is likely to reduce the effectiveness of therapy. This workshop will help person-centred practitioners recognise and work with shame in the therapy room – both in their clients and themselves – and to understand it from a person-centred theoretical perspective. While consistently underpinned by theory, the day will emphasise and allow time to explore the unique, personal and profoundly impactful experience of shame. The day will consider: · What is the nature and existence of shame? · How does shame manifest in everyday life and in the therapy room? · Shame within the person-centred theoretical framework · How does therapist shame get in the way of facilitating the six conditions? Helen Skelton is a person-centred psychotherapist and clinical supervisor and teaches on the MSc in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute in London. She is a passionate explorer of the person-centred approach and theory as a living practice, informing all relationships - personal, professional and with the self. She is also passionate about helping practitioners feel secure and articulate in expressing areas of their person-centred work. Her interest in shame comes from both personal and professional experience. The nature of the subject means there are a limited number of places available. To secure a place please email Helen at helenskelton@me.com. Online Focusing workshops Introduction to Focusing – 10-5 Saturday 5th June - £65 (whole weekend discounted at £120) ONE SPACE LEFT!
